Snoop Lion Pokemon

Snoop Lion, for those unaware, is the current artistic name of the rapper many will likely know as Snoop Dogg. In recent times he's undergone a fairly major image change, with a shift in his music's themes, that new name and an even more chilled out style.

Rather than hitting up the streets with Dr. Dre — or whatever — the most recent tracks from the rapper have been more wholesome than his older work, and the latest video for "Get Away" has a retro game theme. This includes a side-scrolling shooter sequence and, far more prominently, a lengthy section riffing on Pokémon, showing a pixel-based Snoop exploring an overworld before engaging in a battle with the track's producer, Major Lazer.
